So as everyone anxiously awaits to hear who the winner is of the Joke Contest Giveaway (deadline is July 14th - Bastille day - so you still have time to submit your wit and win!) I thought I would share my my recent Vintage finds from Vermont this past 4th of July and what I made!
I found a few vintage clip-on bow ties at my favorite little shop in Woodstock, Vermont - "Who is Sylvia". Of course my husband scored a sharp gingham one! The other two I decided to deconstruct and "rehab" them into something I could wear.
First I unstitched the middle band to remove the clip and wash them.
After you have washed and dried (I used woolite and layed flat to dry) I sewed the bow to cinch in the middle. This keeps the shape of the bow and also makes it easier to assemble.
Then I hot glued the middle of cinched bow to a headband... sewed the band over the center of the bow and headband....AND...
TA DA! I love them. A fancy pants retro headband!
Stay tuned for July 14th when I'll announce the "funny" winner of a Sharp Shark Necklace of their choosing!
